Hey Now Folks, if ever the FF goes down AND it's all too apparent it's not coming back up in short order, I propose a three tiered plan for just such an emergency -
First off, I've opened up the FF Lifeboat to guests. No membership/login needed! It's still ad supported - Anyone finds them overwhelming maybe try ad blockers if you aren't already using them, you are and it's still a prob, I'm outta suggestions.
'Course, folks who wanna do MORE than lurk still need an account - If navigating ads or anything else keeps you from registering, feel free to PM Riddick at FF and I'll set you up - Obviously, that's best done BEFORE an emergency need arises, eh?
Secondly AND thirdly, for folks who find coping with ads is just too much trouble OR in any event for whatever reason it happens the Lifeboat's not living up to its name? Even as The Deuce is no more, there ARE still the 2 living FF descendants -
As it is, I know a number of FFers already have accounts at one or both, and even as II is doing well frankly IW would benefit greatly from an influx of activity. In any case, I'd say either's well suited as a place to regroup 'til Fan fixes what ails.
Well, folks, that's all I got: Anyone has any other ideas, don't hesitate to post 'em!
